All The Best In 2018! January 1, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Health & Wellness.

May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye’ll ivver see.
May the moose ne’er lea’ yer girnal wi a tear-drap in its ee.
May ye aye keep hail an hertie till ye’r auld eneuch tae dee.
May ye aye juist be sae happie as A wuss ye aye tae be.

The above, in translation, reads:

May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your grain store with a tear drop in its eye.
May you always stay hale and hearty until you are old enough to die.
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be.

All the best in 2018!

Happy New Year Nancy 🙂

Here’s to a year filled with magical moments & memories!

Happy New Year! I was trying to think of a snappy comeback but I’m not snappy today. The weather, however, is a snappy 5. As I was yelling at my husband, “This is January weather!” he reminded me that it is January. As soon as we win this damn lottery, we’ll be buying a winter house somewhere near you! We’ll need a private plane to fly the cats down! Have a great day!

I hear ya! One of my college roommates has a private jet to ferry herself and her cats, dogs, and birds around. Dream Big!

Your January weather reminds me of the weather on the day we migrated south in 2009 ~> cold, gray, blustery, with a “snappy” windchill that seeped into your bones and took a foothold. I do NOT miss “January weather.”

Kate Crimmins - January 1, 2018

Me too!

What if you just rent down here for a month or two each winter? You can be a “snowbird” . . . and the cats will enjoy the excitement of packing and unpacking.

I like the mouse reference. We are fortunate to live in a land and age of plenty. Happy New Year, Nancy!

We are fortunate:

Some hae meat and canna eat
And some wad eat that want it
But we hae meat and we can eat
Sae let the Lord be Thanket!

Happy New Year, Nancy! Do you have a spare room for your blogger friends who are up here freezing? It’s brutal!

nrhatch - January 1, 2018

Yes! We have a 2nd master with a private bath ~> c’mon down!

5. William D'Andrea - January 1, 2018

In your translation you say: “May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be.”
That makes me wonder. Just how happy do you always want me to be?
Happy New Year Nancy!

nrhatch - January 1, 2018

As happy as you can be!

6. L. Marie - January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! What a lovely blessing.

So cold here! I think we all want to crowd in your guest room!

nrhatch - January 1, 2018

We can have a Slumber Party! It’s 42 degrees here at the moment, though . . . so bring your flannel PJ’s!

7. Tiny - January 3, 2018

I wish you and BFF a wonderful 2018! May it bring many new adventures and lots of joy!

nrhatch - January 3, 2018

Thanks! Hope you have a wonderful reunion with Dylan and that you both are met with pleasant surprises throughout the year.

8. Debra - January 3, 2018

Right back to you, dear Nancy!

nrhatch - January 3, 2018

You must be in the warmest part of the country at the moment. It’s a brisk 43 degrees here tonight!

Debra - January 4, 2018

We are so warm in comparison I feel guilty! LOL! I called a good friend today in Virginia and promised her I would never again complain to her about our drought! We had a good laugh!

nrhatch - January 5, 2018

Most of the counties just to the North of us had FROST last night! With more promised for tonight. It’s chilly, willy!

9. Anne Lene @ MinimalistSometimes - January 9, 2018

Happy new year, Nancy. Loved the blessing, hope your year is filled with great adventures đź’•

nrhatch - January 9, 2018

Yes! Less stuff . . . more fabulous fun!
